Honouring Lancashire’s most influential, innovative and inspiring business people aged sub36.
Sub36 is Lancashire Business View's campaign to showcase Lancashire's young business talent. We do this through the regular magazine feature, networking events and annual awards.
Sub36 is about recognising hard work, skill and ambition. It's about recognising the great workplaces that allow the younger generation to flourish.
It’s about making our people and our businesses stronger. It’s about local entrepreneurship. It’s about celebrating Lancashire. It’s about sharing successes widely – in print, online and at events. It’s about connecting the county.
And it's about providing a platform for young business leaders to learn, grow, develop and connect.
Sub36 is good for…
"The process couldn’t have been more professionally organised. The Judges welcomed you with a smile and were there to hear about you, not interrogate you. The award has helped boost my profile professionally."Hannah Hughes Harrison Drury Solicitors, Sub36 winner
"Judging was an exciting process, the judges themselves were very supportive and clearly wanted the interviews to go well as much as the applicants did."Chris Smith Pendle Engineering, Sub36 winner
"The Sub 36 awards are a fantastic opportunity for young professionals across Lancashire to showcase their many and varied accomplishments. We believe in celebrating and rewarding success and see the Sub 36 awards as the perfect way to recognise the valuable contribution made by the upcoming generation of business professionals across our region."Ian McCulloch Begbies Traynor, Sub36 sponsor
"It's really important for young professionals to meet and network with fellow like-minded individuals in the region and the LBV Sub36 networking events are a great opportunity to do this. Regardless of what sector you work in, by working in partnership we can support one another in the early stages of our careers and strengthen Lancashire's overall offering."Lauren Grice Bespoke Digital Agency, Sub36 finalist
"The Sub36 Awards celebrate the talents and achievements of some of Lancashire’s leading business professionals under the age of 36 who in turn will become our future business leaders. We are proud to sponsor the awards and recognise the achievements of those set to be nominated. "Claire Shore Blackburn College, Sub36 sponsor

"Going through the Sub36 awards journey has been a catalyst for growth, new ideas, new people and new clients but even more than that was the confidence and subsequent self belief to be acknowledged by such a respected process."Richard Few Sales Geek, Sub36 New Business of the Year 2018
